After declaring his interest in the governor's seat, former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale has continued with his meet-the-people-tour in his region.

However, even as the dust is yet to settle on the backlash he received after congratulating Harambe stars for beating Tanzania- a few days after he had ridiculed them for losing to Algeria - the online users have trolled him again.

On Saturday, the aspiring was at the Navakholo Constituency in Kakamega where he claimed to have had a youth empowerment program.

He posted on his Twitter page a picture of a young girl he was carrying and wrote: “While in Navakholo today for a youth motivational & empowerment program…”

However, his further remarks: “…a little angel popped up from nowhere and fell in love with me! I immediately bought her a brand new dress,” caught the attention of his followers who were quick to react.

Though a few people approved of his kind gesture, many criticized him for boasting over what some would call 'not-important'.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions from his followers:

We should start questioning the age of our good Dr He is deteriorating so exponentially.

Kadima @PhilloKadz

So??? Now that you bought her a dress worth 300, you want the whole world to clap for you?

isaiah omondi @isaiah_omondi

Paying her school fees would have been better... dress will get torn, education will stay forever

Tenda wema tembeza! We do not need to know! Or you did it for publicity????

The wanted @JohnsonMinyari2

Buying a new dress to little girl should not be in public,though we understand you're a blogger nowdays!

Nicholaz de Mikudhoz @NicholazdeMikud

U should have sponsored her education. This twang'ang'ana people. U like showing up, even for things that don't make sense Nkt!!!

Mwaimuthee @Mwaimuthee1

Kenyans we are so rude to our leaders that is why after elections, if you call them unasikia mteja hapatikani.

Fred @Izaika

Enyewe you cannot be helped. People are doing great things out here without uttering a single word. Paying school fees and hospital bills, building widows’ houses. You buy a child a dress and you can't stop farting about it


Talk of long-term solutions, what is a dress surely?? N you want to be a governor?
